A creamy simple pumpkin soup that's extremely easy to make. This recipe is from my year 10 cooking class and its my go to recipe on a cold winters day. Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of warm soup? I also serve mine with extra cream, feta and crispy bacon shards to add some texture.
350g Pumpkin ( I use butternut)
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock
1/4 Teaspoon ground Ginger
1 Medium Onion
2 Tablespoons Cream
Peel pumpkin and cut into 5cm pieces. Peel and finely chop onion. Place all ingredients, except cream, into a saucepan. Cover and bring to the boil, Stirring once or twice. Once boiling turn heat down to a simmer and cook until pumpkin is soft. Cool slightly then place in a blender and puree until smooth. Return to saucepan and reheat soup. Stir in cream and serve hot.
A tasty treat where the flavor options are endless. I first had these at a BBQ in Australia. My mother in law had brought them and from then i was hooked. I make them all the time for my daughter and she loves them as well. They are so simple to make but ridiculously tasty!
2 Sheets Puff Pastry
150g Bacon Bits
200g Cheese (This can be any cheese you like, i use a mix of Parmesan and Cheddar)
80g Passata (Or a good Tomato pasta sauce)
Oil for frying
Pre heat oven to 180'c. Layer a large baking tray with baking paper.
Heat oil in a small frying pan on a medium heat. Add bacon bits and fry until golden n crispy.
Spread passata over one side of each of the puff pastry sheets. Sprinkle cheese over sauce (save some cheese for putting over the top before putting in oven). Evenly scatter the cooked bacon bits over cheese. Roll up pastry and cut each log into 12 slices, layer slices with the filling facing up on the covered baking tray. Sprinkle over remaining cheese.
Bake in oven for 20 mins or until pastry is puffed and golden.
